Student Care FAQs

NEW Social Distancing FAQs

Click here to read the social distancing FAQs.

What Should I Know About Registering?

Enrollment is only valid for one year. Every student needs to re-register every year.

The $75 account registration fee is an annual payment to process and set-up your account. It does not go towards your Kids Care or SOAR payment.

Registration fees are non-refundable.

It takes three business days to process registration before your student can attend Kids Care. You will receive an email notification with the start date.

What Should I Do to Cancel Care?

We require a 15-day written notice on all cancellations. Please email your notice to [email protected].

Can I Split the Expenses on a Single Account?

No. If you want to split the expenses of student care, each person being billed needs to set up their own account and pay the $75.00 account registration fee per student.

Is Kids Care Open on School Breaks?

Kids Care does offer Holiday Care on days when school is closed for breaks or to observe federal holidays. Holiday Care requires a separate registration, found online.

Kids Care is closed on select holidays. Review the Kids Care calendar for those dates.

Where Do I Update My Information?

Information may be updated on the parent portal.
